Nissan Canada is recalling more than 10,000 Titan full-size pickups over an electrical short that can cause an engine stall.
The recall notice, which covers 10,389 Titans from the model years 2017-2019, said the alternator harness could have been damaged during the engine installation process. A damaged harness contacting the metal frame can result in an electrical short.
"This condition may prevent the battery from charging and, over time, the battery could lose voltage causing the vehicle's electrical components to flicker and turn off," a statement from Nissan Motor Co. said. "The vehicle will operate at reduced power and if the condition worsens, an engine stall may occur while driving. In a worst-case scenario, the short may result in a localized thermal incident."
The recall notice on Transport Canada’s website said that recalled vehicles would be inspected and, if necessary, damaged alternator harnesses would be replaced.
No injuries or accidents resulting from the issue have been reported.
